Tours offered for Scripps Institution of Oceanography

The Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla is inviting the public to free one-hour tours of its campus and working research pier, which is normally closed to the public.

Several of the campus' historical buildings will be included in the walking tours, which will be offered from noon to 1 p.m. on the second and fourth Fridays of every month, according to a release.

The Ellen Browning Scripps Memorial Pier, which in 1988 replaced the institution's original Scripps Pier, will be open for visitors to see its contributions to the facility, which include boat launches, onsite experimentation, ocean condition and plankton data collection, the pumping of seawater for the institution's uses and a site for scientific scuba diving.

Research labs will not be included in the tour. Registration for the free tours is required, and can be completed at scripps.ucsd.edu/tour.
